Love versus Money is the third and most commercially successful album by Australian rock band Noiseworks. It contained the Top 10 hit "Hot Chilli Woman" and the Top 20 single "Miles And Miles".

Amongst the well-known names that contributed to the album were Snap! singer Penny Ford, Vika Bull and Michael Hutchence of INXS. The album also contained a tribute to frontman Jon Stevens's late mother who had died from cancer, the song was titled "R.I.P. (Millie)".

This was to be the final studio album for phase one of Noiseworks, and they disbanded shortly after. However, in December 2007 lead singer Jon Stevens announced that Noiseworks, who had reformed in that year (minus keyboardist Justin Stanley), were returning to the studio in 2008 to record their first album together in sixteen years.
